Taking Over Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Deny The Cross (4:43)
I'll steal your life and cut out your heart
Rip the core of your world apart
Then I'll take your sight, leave ya blind
Laughing hard as you loose your mind

Smash in your skull! Kick out your brains!
Dance all over! What remains!?

~Life!~ The living danger
~Death!~ The welcome stranger
~In sin!~ You deny the cross, deny the cross

I'm an angel, I'm virgin white
This only happens every night
Restitution for my sin
Imprisoned virtue, time begins

Killer instincts escape my find!
Path of destruction left behind!

~Life!~ The living danger
~Death!~ The welcome stranger
~In sin!~ You deny the cross, deny the cross

Life, it walks away, it walks today, it fades away
Death is here to stay, is here today to deny the cross

Draw and quarter, slice the meat
Now there's something more to eat
Nothing left, there is just a frame
This poor soul has no name

Back to dirt! Six feet deep!
I take a breath long and deep!

~Life!~ The living danger
~Death!~ The welcome stranger
~In sin!~ You deny the cross, deny the cross
2. Wrecking Crew (4:32)
Ain't no job too big or small, just one sweep of the wreckin' ball
Put 'em up, we'll knock 'em down or knock 'em up, then leave town
Demolition of the mind, desolation left behind
Light the fuse, dynamite, light the sky in the night!

We're gonna walk all over you
'Cause we are the wreckin', wreckin' crew!
We are the wreckin' crew
Wreckin' crew!, we are the wreckin' crew

Destruction is a way of life; destruction, mayhem, havoc, strife
Crack a smile, hear the sound, watch 'em crumble to the ground
Innocence ain't no excuse, slip your neck inside the noose
Pay in blood, I demand; the wreckin' crew is outta hand

We're gonna walk all over you
'Cause we are the wreckin', wreckin' crew!
We are the wreckin' crew
We'll wreck your neck, wreckin' crew! Get wrecked!

Turn to ashes, turn to dust, we're the ones that you can trust
Evil smile, wicked grin, tear it down, begin to sin
Think that you will end it all, there's no one left to ball or call
When there ain't nothin' left to do, call upon the wreckin' crew!

We're gonna walk all over you
'Cause we are the wreckin', wreckin' crew!
We are the wreckin' crew
We'll wreck your neck, wreckin' crew!
Yer wreck! Ah! Wreckin' crew!
3. Fear His Name (5:24)
On judgment day the moon lights the way
And those with open eyes will see...
Hail the avenger, midnight defender
The end will never be
You look to the light, dawn of a new day
Hail the avenger, he who lights the way

Away with your fear, I've cried all my tears
Delivered from the night
Hail the avenger laughing at danger
Shed blood, bring life
If you live by the sword you die by the sword
All hail! the avenger, accept our new lord

The defeated lay, lifeless in the pit
His face reflects the horror of his victems in tenfold
A death of deaths, all evil fear his name
Struck down by a man
His severed limbs ooze oceans of our blood
Man stands, oh, knee deep within...
Paused to scream, this is not a sin
I have done your will, I've delivered
From this day forth known as the avenger...

Guarding the weak and those who seek
Asylum from a world of wrong...
Hail the avenger, midnight defender
Silent, bold and strong
You echo our cry, so ends war
All hail the avenger
Victory hour, oh, victory ours
Our vengeance recall, those starting to fall
Oh, victory hour!
4. Use Your Head (4:20)
Set in overdrive, makin' money on the side
Lookin' for some dirty action
Leave 'em on the floor, leave 'em wantin' more
Use it for the prime reaction

Workin' like a dog, tired cold, and bored
Stimulate me to satisfaction
Alcohol and sluts pull me from my rut
Second only to the attraction

~You~ got a lot to learn, your head's up your ass
~You~ got a lot to learn; you got no class, no class

Take me to the top, never never stop
So pretty what's your name, where ya from?
I see you like the band, don't leave me with my hand
Stick around I'll throw you a bone

Workin' like a dog, tired cold, and bored
Stimulate me to satisfaction
Alcohol and sluts pull me from my rut
Second only to the attraction

~You~ got a lot to learn, your head's up your ass
~You~ got a lot to learn; you got no class, no class

Crack another beer, sit on over here
What I need I can't do alone?
Think that I'm in love sittin' in your glove
What's your name? Here I come out, I'm done

Workin' like a dog, tired cold, and bored
Stimulate me to satisfaction
Alcohol and sluts pull me from my rut
Second only to the attraction

~You~ got a lot to learn, your head's up your ass
~You~ got a lot to learn; you got no class...
Why don't you use your head?
5. Fatal If Swallowed (6:48)
Lust is the fire which warms you in the night scorching the edge of your soul
I am desire, your eyes are filled with light; pleasing the master your goal
Like a fly to a spider against my web you fight, my poison dousing your flame
Call on the liar to fill the hole with light; your feelings went as I came

Fatal if swallowed! My love's too much to hold
A deadly poison, a hot and heavy load
Fatal if swallowed! A love you can't resist
Another believer is sealed with a kiss

Animal attraction, the numbing of your flesh; no reason to let this action wait
Your physical convulsions, the quiver of your lips open up, ah! take the bait
You taste it, revolting, wishing you were dead; the effect you'll never grow old
Oozing slime foaming at the mouth; so dizzy! The poison takes its toll

Fatal if swallowed! My love's too much to hold
A deadly poison, a hot and heavy load
Fatal if swallowed! A love you can't resist
Another believer is sealed with a kiss

No protection, forced injection
Feel the bite, feel the sting
No detection, slow infection
Now you know what good lovin' brings

Are you a believer or are you just a corpse, a worm eaten mass of disgust?
Yeah, I'm a deceiver, the reaper, a letch, the reason your driven by lust
But your not the first, you won't be the last; I lead, others will follow
No mercy, forgiveness, no begging for reprieve; my venom, fatal if swallowed!!!

Fatal if swallowed! My love's too much to hold
A deadly poison, a hot and heavy load
Fatal if swallowed! A love you can't resist
Another believer is sealed with a kiss
Ooo, with a kiss... Fatal... Kiss this...

Open up wide, I'm cummin' inside!
6. Powersurge (4:36)
Leave? Don't try; they die to get inside
A falling out between you and your pride
No, don't go, there's something you should know:
This blinding light can tear apart your soul
Shattered dreams are not all that they seem
The light can change from white to blue to green
Left to right; there's power in the night
And the powersurge driven by the light!

~Power~ building up
~Power~ all around you
~Power~ You feel it
~Power~ A powersurge

Stay away, there's something I must say:
This light reduces all that's in it's way
In the dark ignited by a spark
A fire burns, a fire makes its mark
See the flash, a mountain turns to ash
Recollection, echoes of the past
Right to left; power's what you get
And the powersurge isn't over yet!

~Power~ building up
~Power~ It's coming back
~Power~ Feel it
~Power~ Powersurge!

Coming out of the sun
There are battles to be won
Colors change from blue to red
Forgotten heroes, piles of dead
A mass of steel down in flame
Powersurge remains the same
Commandeer turns to dust
The mass of steel begins to rust...
7. In Union We Stand (4:26)
From the islands to the cities, from the ports into the sea
We are strong, we will always be...
Blazing through the wreckage, burning all we see
The life we lead committed to be free...
Our union is a fortress, together we are bound
A common bound in freedom and in sound!
So raise your voices high for miles around to hear
Let them know we are drawing near...

~In union we stand~ as they blaze across the land
~In union~ we make a final stand...

A peaceful co-existence is dropping out of sight
So band together, together we will fight
Blasting the resistance, marching to the top
They started this, we say when it stops
Strike fear within their hearts, strike down those in your way
Let them know that we live today!
They throw us into flames, did not hear our cries
But now from the ashes we arise...

~In union we stand~ as they blaze across the land
~In union~ we make a final stand...
8. Electro-Violence (3:45)
Watch the circle, dehumanize
Fuck the world, stay outside
You tread on me and you will find
That you flirt with death before your time

Face the music and the time has come!
Into the circle! Electroviolence
~Violence~ Electroviolence
~Violence~ Electroviolence

Keep your distance, subdivide
Do not enter, conservative type
Sweaty bodies, bodily harm
Abuse thy neighbour, thats the charm

Face the music and the time has come!
Into the circle! Electroviolence
~Violence~ Electroviolence
~Violence~ Electroviolence!

~Blood~ shed on everyone
Don't mistake violence for fun
~Blood,~ guilty fashion fiend
What you here for? You don't fit in

Take the shot, take the pain
Rebound, back again
Uncivilized reaction appeals to me
No restraints, face reality

Face the music and the time has come!
Into the circle! Electroviolence
~Violence~ Electroviolence
~Violence~ Electroviolence

Never victim, always vice
Taking charge, desensitized
Do unto others, stay unbowed
You social misfit, you're one of us now

Face the music and the time has come!
Into the circle! Electroviolence...
9. Overkill II (The Nightmare Continues) (7:08)
Strangled in this knot of sin
He returns, again begins
Again to bend and tear the will
A witness to this overkill!!!

Awaken! Awaken in me
Through my eyes, through my eyes you will see
What is real, what is to be
All the madness, madness in me

You taste the blood that I long for
Regain my strength and complete my chore.!.

Like a serpent poised to strike
Like the moon that fills the night
You, the question, answer, they cried
You've always been destined to ride

You taste the blood that I long for
Regain my strength and complete my chore
Passion rests in an empty will
The nightmare continues.!.

~Into the night~ a rider goes then disappears
~Out of the light~ he reappears again
~Beware,~ one eye does follow you
~To kill again~ and again!!!

Slow and sure, a beating heart
Is sure to have the killing starts
The beating stops, fin de la vie
Overkill rides again!

~Into the night~ a rider goes then disappears
~Out of the light~ he reappears again
~Beware,~ one eye does follow you
~To kill again~ and again!!!

A killer like no man
A faster death by one's own hand.
Safety comes when the wind is still
This the legend, overkill!

You taste the blood that I long for
Regain my strength and complete my chore
Passion rests in an empty will
The nightmare continues.!.
